Motivated for the Mission
Acts 2:29-42; Acts 4:27-31; Acts 5:12-32

Truth #1 – A Christ follower is commanded to repent and believe. Act 2:29-40
Repentance requires changing the way we think. To be a follower of Christ we must say what God says about sin.
Believing is putting full faith in the sanctifying work of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. You must be born again. John 3:3; Romans 3:23; 5:8; 6:23; 10:9-13

Truth #2 – A Christ follower is commanded to be baptized.
The act of baptism is a command given to Jesus to His disciples. There is no second option. Matthew 28:18-20
Baptism should be the first act of obedience to God after salvation. Acts 2:29-40

Truth #3 – A Christ follower is characterized by holy boldness.
The Holy Spirit energizes you to speak boldly the Word of God.
Holy Boldness is always Holy Spirit led. Never pick a fight!

Are you motivated for the mission?
Do you have the Holy Spirit guiding your life?
Are you holy bold?
